Domestic bliss

I cleaned the house! And, surprise surprise, I managed to clean off quite a few stains and such I had assumed were a permanent part of the walls, or the floor, or the sinks, or the oven, since none of the maids had gotten rid of them. Well, at least now the house looks like I would like it to look when we are expecting guests. The hubby managed to sort out and put away the incredible amount of cables and various thingamajiggers he seems to accumulate year after year and is unable to relinquish. The mother load, that has been taking over the study and spreading its tenticles all the way to the guest room bed (and I swear was actually taking root) is now at least behind closet doors. Hurrah!

Moreover, since the magnificent stain-removal accomplishment gave me an immense surge of domesticity I also baked a Mississippi Mud Pie for dessert tonight. I don't cook and very rarely bake, but I must admit the aroma of the chocolate in the house is pretty darn nice, especially compared to the air freshener that supposedly is citrus scented, but in reality smells like not yet ripe banana mixed with toothpaste.

Furthermore, tomorrow morning I'm doing yet another 10km race. This time in the runner's category...

Life is really truly good.

Moi! Löysin blogiisi jonkun lukemamme blogin komenttilootan kautta :) Kiva seurailla eloanne Jburgisa. Terkkuja 'naapurista', Gabsista!

Kiitos visiitistä Savu! Ehkä tätä sittenkin lukee joku muukin kuin mies ja äiti.
Botswana on vielä käymättä, mutta listalla. Ehkä löytyy blogistasi hyvia vinkkejä.
Terveiset!

Pahoin pelkään, että mun blogista löytyy enemmän perheenäidin bermudan kolmiossa pörräävää stooria: koti, päiväkoti, kauppa ;) Takana ovat Okavangon mokoroseikkailut - ainakin toistaiseksi! Mutta Gabsin kauttahan tämän maan matkailuvaltit tavoittaa, joten tervetuloa vaan jos näillä nurkilla liikutte!
